The LEP is an active participant and supporter to the LEP Network, both financially and in staff engagement. Staff members are also involved in national working groups and on advisory boards such as Scale-Up and Growth Hubs. At sub-national level the LEP is a member of the Northern Powerhouse Council of LEPs (NP11) at both Chair and executive level. Through the Chair, the LEP is a member of the Transport for the North Board and Transport for the North Partnership Board. At regional level, the LEP Chair meets regularly with the other LEP Chairs of the other four North West LEPs and who also work through the North West Business Leadership Team. The five LEPs of the North West have formed a North West Local Energy Hub which Liverpool City Region LEP hosts. There is further collaboration with sub-sets of north-western LEPs such as in Atlantic Gateway. The LEP senior executives have regular meetings with Greater Manchester and Cheshire and Warrington LEPs. The creation of Mayoral Combined Authorities for Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester provide additional means of collaboration.
